  1. Background information

The Street Surface Improvement Program (SSIP) began in 2009 for city streets showing accelerated deterioration in order to create longer term benefits than just with roadway maintenance. Since this program began, over 2,100 properties have benefitted, and 20.0 miles of city streets have been resurfaced or 20% of the 69.1 miles of city streets.

The 2022 SSIP is proposed to be approximately 2.2 miles of resurfacing for the neighborhood of the Brom and Dunham Oaks Additions. The 2022 SSIP project will also include the portion of Randal Drive cul-de-sac west of 7th Avenue. The project will also include resurfacing the parking lot at George Enloe Park and paving the parking lot at Rudy Johnson Park. The estimated cost of this project is $2,403,000.

  1. Underground Irrigation Systems

Construction activity may disrupt the boulevards where an irrigation system may be installed. We feel that as a part of the project, it is our responsibility to restore the systems we have been notified about. The City of Anoka will hire an irrigation system contractor to repair your system if it is damage during construction. 

Click here to fill out a brief questionnaire, which will provide notice to the city that your property has an irrigation system.   

Regrettably, if we do not receive acknowledgement that you have an irrigation system by the time construction starts this spring, it will be your sole responsibility to repair your own system. Click here to fill out a brief questionnaire.
